  • Our Alumni are Leaders in Dentistry

    In recent years, collegiate alumni or former faculty have included one university president, five Big Ten dental deans, three ADA trustees, three ADEA presidents,  and an IADR president. In addition, over 80% of Iowa Dental Association presidents are our alumni.

  • Dedicated to Serving Iowa

    Nearly 80% of Iowa's dentists are alumni of the University of Iowa College of Dentistry delivering over $800 million in oral health care services to Iowans annually. An estimated 99% of Iowans are within a 30-minute drive of a practicing University of Iowa alumnus.

  • Have a Legacy of Giving Back

    Of all the professional schools at Iowa, dental alumni love and support our university and our college. Help us pass on that legacy to future generations.
